Study: Children may suffer long-term effects of brain injuries

Previously, doctors and researchers believed that young children were better able to recover from traumatic brain injuries than older children and adults, due largely to the "plastic" nature of a young child's brain as it continues to develop. According to a new study, however, that may not be the case.

Boy fatally chokes on pushpin, family files wrongful death suit

No parent should have to deal with the premature death of their young child.

Passengers increase distraction, crash risk for teenage drivers

Teenage girl injured in California motorcycle accident

When we write about motorcycle accidents in this personal injury blog, they usually involve a crash between a car and a motorcycle. More often than not, they involve some level of carelessness on the part of the car's driver and result in significant injury to the motorcyclist. But in a recent motorcycle accident in California, none of those common characteristics were present.

Are NFL players aware of brain injury risk? Part one

In recent months, we have written multiple blog posts on the pending lawsuits filed by several former professional football players against the National Football League. In those suits, the plaintiffs accused the NFL of negligently or purposely ignoring the potential for brain injury to football players, causing them to suffer concussions and other head trauma that has already or likely will lead to long-term brain injuries. You can read more about those head injury lawsuits in our earlier blog posts.
